The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) is currently seeking to fill one Ecologist / Botanist position, classified as an Associate Vegetation Ecologist. The position includes at least 10 months of work, beginning in mid-June 2020, and the position may be extended dependent on funding.
Duties will include both coordinating field-based vegetation assessments, performing fieldwork, synthesizing and analyzing data for monitoring, classifying and mapping vegetation. This position requires a highly organized, detail-oriented individual to help coordinate field missions, analyze and integrate vegetation data in regional and statewide efforts, support vegetation classification and mapping efforts, outreach and communication. Other tasks will include plant identification, data quality control, vegetation type research and description, and other related tasks.
This position will coordinate and participate in vegetation inventory projects across California; including sampling efforts from NE California (e.g., Lassen and Modoc County) to the SE California (e.g., from Madera to Imperial counties); long-term monitoring in post-fire areas (Tulare and Kern counties); monitoring restoration areas in the Carrizo Plain (San Luis Obispo County), etc.
The Student Conservation Association (SCA) is America’s conservation corps. Members protect and restore national parks, marine sanctuaries, cultural landmarks and community green spaces in all 50 states.

Duration: 6 months, with potential to extend. Start date in early June 2020
Position: The incumbent leads a small crew in the collection and processing of data for scientific research conducted by the Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team at the USFS Pacific Wildland Fire Sciences Lab. There are multiple existing projects for field data collection. Projects include, but are not limited to, characterization of wildland fuels in multiple locations throughoutthe United States (including the southeastern and western US); evaluation of fuel consumption during prescribed burns, and post-fire tree damage inventory. This data will be used to assess fuels modeling methods, and evaluate the overall predictive capability of fuels and fire behavior models. Data collection includes identification and physical measurements of trees, shrubs, understory plants, downed woody debris, litter, and ground fuels, and collection of fuel samples for laboratory processing.
